Eight is not Enough (Part 1 of 2)

Back in the 1970’s and 1980’s there was a program on TV called “Eight is Enough.” Generation X’ers will probably remember the show. It was based on the true story of a journalist and his wife who were raising eight children. “The Brady Bunch” and “The Partridge Family” were other TV shows that focused on large families. Each of these half-hour sitcoms idealized the trials and rewards of raising a lot of children.

No two siblings are alike, some are best friends, some have years between them and others have different interests and goals. Different interests and goals is not the case with the Stone Brothers. They have been side by side throughout their growing life and now shoulder to shoulder in the sport that continues to drive their brotherly bond.
